I saw a picture of this fly in Nauset Anglers, anybody care to comment about the makeup of this fly. Looks like a deceiver with rabbit wound in the front.

It's a Harry Koons' original...

I used that fly exclusively for years at the Chatham light and still have it as one of my 5 best flies. It was deadly on big stripers and still is. I tie them in Chartreuse ,olive, and white. Before I started tying I would buy them from Goose hommock when Harry was there. He is the inventor of that fly.
